Trump’s menacing erraticism is unprecedented
We have a mentally ill racist who is unfit and unstable posing as president. He is a pathological liar on a daily basis. His sycophantic White House staff are pathological liars on a daily basis. The Nazi-like propaganda lies run continuously throughout the day. Denigrate the press with Orwellian Trumpspeak, and tell the world that the media is the opposition and the enemy. This is fascism, pure and simple.
In less than a fortnight, the chaos caused by this delusional narcissist on a nationwide and global scale is unparalleled in American presidential history.
He has no intellectual grasp on the concepts of three branches of government. He demeans the judiciary with childlike rants. He disparages a federal judge, nominated by a Republican president, and confirmed by a 99-0 unanimous bipartisan vote. He alienates allies on a daily basis. He equates Russian thug Vladimir Putin, known to have his political enemies and journalists murdered routinely, as the moral equivalent of the United States. His ignorance of the law, and complete lack of intelligence and knowledge about governing in a democracy is incredibly dangerous to the safety of all Americans.
His unhealthy addiction to only reading reports about himself is sick and scary. His Rasputin-like adviser (white supremacist Steve Bannon) needs to be 86’d. We cannot wait for impeachment. Put him in a straight-jacket and order a lobotomy.
And yes, I will tell you I told you so.
